World’s Heaviest Kid Loses 220lbs | TRULY

SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft TV:

A THIRTEEN-year-old boy, who once weighed 423llbs, has lost over half of his body weight thanks to weight loss surgery and is now looking to have his excess skin removed. Once known as the heaviest child in the world, Arya Permana, from Karawang, West Java, Indonesia is now an active 13-year-old after losing an incredible 220lbs. When he was 10-years-old – and at his heaviest – Arya weighed 423lbs (over 30 stone or 192kg) – the same as six boys his same age. But for all the ways that his life has improved, the weight loss has resulted in a large amount of excess skin on Arya’s arms and chest in particular. The teenager is hoping to have skin removal surgery, at the Hasan Sadikin Hospital in Bandung, after completing the national exams.

  1. Almost every parents wants to fell happy and make the children or child happy by spoiling them and sometimes it's a good thing and other times it's bad

  2. That’s often. I hope that someone sponsors this very motivated and incredible child to get cosmetic surgery if he wishes. I know that in the US, people who lose this much weight like to get surgery to remove excess skin. I am American and I need this surgery but have not been able to afford it either. But, especially for a child, it seems important.
    Edit: I am so glad the doctor offered to do the surgery…I hadn’t seen that part yet. 😊
